Theology Thursday: Ananias and Sapphira

Acts: St Peter's Church, verse by verse in two volumes...* Why Were Ananias and Sapphira Killed in the New Testament? A story seemingly out of place, shows the wrath of the God of the Old Testament, but in the New. What is the meaning of the killing of Ananias and Sapphira? Those who assume that its primarily a warning not to lie to God have probably never considered all the substantive reasons why that's not at all the reason that Luke included this account into his story of the advent of the beginning of the Body of Christ. So, tune in to find out the rest of the story. And why you're at it, consider why the Holy Spirit inspired the inclusion into this early church history of three men with the same unusual name, Ananias?

* The Plot: When you realize that the "plot" of the book of Acts helps to illuminate the real meaning in the Ananias and Sapphira story, you'll wonder how much more you can learn if you because proficient in understanding the plot of the entire Bible! Of course, Every story has a plot. And a story's details can be confusing unless you understand its overview. Grasping the big picture will help you reconcile many seemingly contradictory, and controversial Bible passages. Achieve a fuller understanding of God's plan from Genesis to Revelation and equip yourself to share God's Word with friends and family. Consider listening to The Plot series based on Bob's life's work, his book, The Plot.
